Madness Review :Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood
In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend.
But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren—starting with her boyfriend.
Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.
One of my favorite things about this book was the revenge plans that Helen would come up with pure evil genius if you ask me. I know we all have our own Lauren Wood in high school or back in high school
And we all wished that maybe if we had the chance to change our names we can come up with an evil plan but for know I really enjoyed reading this book. You kind of notice how Lauren was always the bossy stuck up one in this friendship and how Helen was always the one who would do anything for Lauren. As I was reading the book I could really understand were Helen was coming from and how she felt that ravage would make her feel better. The way the book opened up was wonderfully plotted if you ask me .But I don’t want to ruin it for you if you’re looking for something Funny and Edgy and about friendship and getting over your old heartbroken friendship this is the book for you.
